Mobile POS and Security: Retail

Posted by Amos Hunt on Jan 20, 2014 6:06:54 AM

A lot of the reaction to the Target security breach has fixated on the backwardness of the physical data storage of American credit cards. The story goes that if only banks would hurry up and get us onto the "Chip and PIN" Europay MasterCard Visa card, we'd all be safer from breaches like this. Chip and PIN cards have some security advantages over the magnetic strip, but it's not likely it would have made much difference in this case.

A Tale of Two iPhones

Posted by Brock Broussard on Oct 16, 2013 11:51:47 PM
